Let's Get Cookin'!


Experience life in an 1812 kitchen! Learn how to cook on an open hearth with period kitchen tools. Ms. Annett & Ms. Lynn Bristol, volunteers at Fort Meigs with over twenty years of experience in open hearth cooking, will again teach this hands-on cooking class to the first 12 registered participants.

  • Get hands-on experience by creating a dish from scratch!
  • Enjoy the fruits of your labor as you sit down to eat the meal at the end of class!
  • Take your experience home with you! All class members receive a cookbook containing the recipes they used in class.

The men this day have begun to catch fish. I bought one this evening for 75 cents; it weighed 5 pounds.
